    Hi, this might not be the most common problem :D
    anyways,

    Im a professional counter strike player and i have a problem with my computer shuttle. My videocard takes 2 slots, the only ones i have and dont have room for my soundcard, which is utterly important. Half the skills are paying attention to ingame sounds.

    Is there anywhere oneslot videocards, i know i saw oneslot AGP back in the day, but cant find any pci-e?! or does there exist a some kind of cable that can be connected to the pci-e and then to my soundcard :S


    or would something like this work: http://www.startech.com/item/PEX2PC...-Length-2-PCIe-Single-lane-Expansion-Box.aspx
    might it slow down though?

    well its a 10year old game, so the "best" oneslot will be good enough.
    The other problem is though, that the soundcard must be inserted right next to the videocard, so i hope overheating of the videocard will not be a problem
